In a shocking incident, a six-storey under-construction building collapsed at Nanakramguda on Thursday. One person died and two were critically injured. The under-construction building was located opposite Sadhura Apartments. The building was owned by Satyanarayana Singh.
A woman and her two children were pulled out of the debris early morning today.
According to to the officials, the mishap occurred around 9.30 pm. Workers were working on the sixth floor when the mishap took place. The GHMC was informed immediately. Rescue teams were not able to reach the location and got delayed due to heavy traffic at Gachibowli.
Many local residents assisted the GHMC rescue team to rescue those stuck in the debris. Two earthmovers were called to clear the debris. Five 108 ambulances and two from a nearby corporate hospital were sent to the spot.
The Cyberabad police and Emergency personnel are still working to pull out the bodies out.
The building collapsed due to the poor quality of construction, illegal floors and two illegal cellars and excavation works in the neighboring plot.
GHMC officials said that "an excavation work up to 40-foot depth was being carried out by Swagruha Ventures in the neighboring plot. This is believed to have weakened the building’s foundation."
